ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska man survived 10 seconds of terror after a chance meeting with a large brown bear in a remote part of Alaska. Allen Minish was mauled during the brief encounter and is now recuperating at an Anchorage hospital. The bear crushed his right jaw and left him with puncture wounds and lacerations. The bear walked off after the short mauling, and Minish tried to stop the bleeding from his head while waiting nearly an hour for help. The incident happened Tuesday near Gulkana, about 190 miles northeast of Anchorage.
